West Ham officials will meet with Juventus officials on Monday to discuss a deal for Denis Zakaria.
The Hammers are ready to lose Declan Rice to Arsenal for a cost of £105 million. While they will lose their finest player, they will receive a significant cash injection, which will increase their transfer budget.
Zakaria has been chosen as Rice’s replacement, and the team is apparently working hard to finalize the transaction.
According to Tuttosport, the two clubs are not far off in terms of money, with West Ham proposing €18 million and the Turin-based club seeking close to €23 million.
According to the report, the two clubs may reach an agreement during their meeting tomorrow.
Even if they have to pay the whole asking amount for Zakaria, David Moyes would be making a terrific signing.
West Ham are anticipated to spend the Rice money on numerous acquisitions as they look to rebound from a disappointing Premier League season. Following Leicester City’s relegation, another name widely connected with a move to the London club is Harvey Barnes.
